Top 8 Reasons To Be A Marvel Movie Fan

Top 8 Reasons To Be A Marvel Movie Fan

The action-packed dramas that are hard to resist.

Everyone has some sort of fandom they are in love with. I happen to have two and since I already wrote about one I figured I should write about the other. I know Marvel comics are supposed to be better than the movies but since I haven’t read any (yet) I figured that I would just start with the top 8 reasons why you should be a Marvel movie fan.

1. The Hot Actors/Actresses

It's no secret that Marvel has a gift for picking hot actors/actresses to play their superheroes. I mean you have the Chris trifecta (Evans, Hemsworth, and Pratt), but then you have women like Scarlet Johansson and Elizabeth Olsen. Marvel really makes it hard not to gawk at the actors.

2. The Kick-Butt Action

Ok, so admittedly there was a different word I wanted to use there but wasn’t sure if I was allowed to. Marvel is very good at choreographing their fight scenes to make them look real and action packed. Being an action movie girl myself I have seen a ton of fight scenes and no one does them quite like Marvel.

3. The Talent

While the actors are hot that is not the only thing they have going for them. They are also very talented. Marvel does a great job at casting the right actor for the right role. I mean Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark through and through. They are one in the same. And could you imagine any other than Chris Evans playing Captain America? I couldn’t. These actors play these roles so well that its hard to imagine anyone else in that role.

4. The Subtle Humor

With all the action-packed drama there has got to be some relief somewhere. Well, Marvel has that, too. "Thor: Ragnarok" was chalk full of humor. From the nicknames to Tony picking a fight with one of the Avengers, there is always some sort of comic relief.

5. Character development

Marvel does well with most of their characters’ development. They give most their big heroes their origin stories and then brings them into the superhero life. With every movie the character is in, they add layers to their personality. With Iron Man, he went from genius billionaire playboy philanthropist to the guy that has problems like PTSD, just like your average Joe.

6. Sequel Mania

Marvel is not shy when it comes to coming out with sequels. "Captain America", "Iron Man", and "Thor" all have three solo movies on top of the Avengers group movies and more to come.

7. The Diversity

The diversity of their cast is amazing. They have strong lead females, as well as Asian-American and African-American stars. They play no favorites and truly seek out those best for the role no matter gender, race, or ethnicity.

8. Game Toppers

Game Toppers

I don’t know how, but somehow, they always seem to top themselves. Every new movie that they put out always seems to raise to the top in the box offices. Each movie doesn’t necessarily top the one before it but they each bring their own elements that make them just as good as the last.

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
